Franz release same album, no-one notices

3rd Oct 2005, 11:00 pm

Franz Ferdinand have released the same album they released last year; and nobody seems to have noticed.

The trademark spikey, art-school sound they popularised with their eponymous debut proved so popular they decided to re-create it, note-for-note, by simply putting a marginally different cover on it.

The amazing thing is no-one seemed to notice. The music press was so busy creaming its pants at the prospect of a new Franz album they simply put all critical faculty to one side and proclaimed it as 'a triumph'.

"It certainly is a triumph" said their A&R manager Paul Wesley; "it cost precisely nothing to record, so I'm in for a whopping bonus this year!"
